Sharing Your Faith in a Hostile Culture
In 1960, 70% of our population went to church.
In 2020, it was 20%.
Only 50% of pastors believe itOnly 20% of churchgoers believe it
The people in our Nation are mainly blind. They don’t see the evil. 90% are lost. Therefore, they are blind. We have the hope!
70% of Americans are living in fear. The number is higher among Christians. Really? Why? It should not be when we live in faith. We should trust the Lord with our whole hearts. James 1:6 applies when we don’t do this because we are double-minded; we want to have faith, yet we give in to fear. This leads to unanswered prayer according to James 1:6.
Over 80% of non-christians know a Christian they trust. Therefore, each can change our neighbor and it will change the world.
Only 1% of us are sharing our faith. 90% are lost.
10% know God, and only 1% of 10% (0.1%) are sharing our faith. This is unbiblical disobedience to God. It is also selfish because we deprive the lost of the only true hope. Live for God’s purpose - Romans 8:28.
We are all good, because we live for His purposes and He is good!
How do we share our faith? Just love people and then follow the Holy Spirit to know what to say. It is that simple.
Isaiah 43:10 - “Thus saith the Lord, I appoint you as My witness … so that you may know that I am God!”
The joy of the Lord is our strength!
